Ms. Zoe has a passion for helping kids realize their potential in a supportive environment. She has worked with kids for 6 years and is exploring the education field as she completes her degree in psychology and education at Occidental College. Born and raised in Burbank, she has taught gymnastics to little kids, where she learned her passion for child development and a career dedicated to the betterment of children’s’ lives. During the pandemic, she served families of autistic children and provided in-home behavioral therapy. She is also interested in the academic side of education and has tutored math professionally. 

 

As she has studied and worked in education thus far, she has begun developing a pedagogy that revolves around the socio-emotional part of development, and prioritizes creating a supportive environment in which children can feel free to be themselves and discover the world around them. She believes that with the right support, any child can achieve their highest dreams and goals. She strongly believes in validating the emotional experiences that children experience in their early lives, and that the skills needed to properly learn from them start forming early on. 

In her free time, Ms. Zoe loves to go hiking, camp at sequoia national park, struggle through knitting, and walk dogs for her community. She is a big animal and nature lover and feels at home in the great outdoors.
